Item description for Dignidad: Ethics Through Hispanic Eyes by Ismael Garcia...

From the publisher- Moral behavior and ethical reflection do not occur in the abstract, but are deeply rooted in the historical and cultural contexts within which they take substance and form. This book presents the religious, social, and ethical sources that inform the moral thinking and practice of Hispanic Christians in the United States. Garcia identifies key experiences that are formative of the ethical point of view of Hispanic people: the experience of migration, the dynamics of social integration with a dominant culture, and the struggle to define a new identity

Publishers Description
Moral behavior and ethical reflection do not occur in a vacuum, but within a religious, social, economic, and political context. In Dignidad, therefore, Ismael Garcia touches on key experiences that can be identified as formative of the ethical view of Hispanics. The experience of migration, the dynamics of social integration, the struggle to define new identity and be faithful to one's cultural heritage are seen as relevant to the formation of the Hispanic moral point of view. Garcia also shows how -- beyond class, race, and gender -- the experience of being defined as "Other" is important in shaping the Hispanic moral framework. Both analytical and advisory, this volume addresses the intersection of Hispanic and Anglo cultures. It provides Anglo readers with a clear understanding of Hispanic ethical reflection.
